He wants to do what?

Bonus post. Sorry, I just couldn't hold my water. Smooches...

What are your feelings on the news that John McCain wants or wanted to suspend this Friday's planned debate with Barack Obama. Is it a maverick move or is he trying to pull the wool over America's eyes? I suspect some 'Blinking' is going on.

I mean shouldn't the future president be able to walk and chew gum? The debate is an hour and a half. He can do that and go to Washington if he really has to. The debate will be a chance for the American people to actually hear his real feelings and possible solutions if he has any for this crisis. Oh and if he's suspending his campaign is he suspending his ads? Enquiring minds want to know.

My feelings can best be summed up my this comment taken from and Mickey Edwards, Princeton lecturer and former Republican congressman:

"Oh, brother. What idiot came up with this stunt? It ranks somewhere on the stupidity scale between plain silly and numbingly desperate. McCain and Obama are both members of the senate and they're both able to help craft a solution if they wish to do so without putting the presidential campaign on hold; after all, I’m sure congressional leaders would be willing to accept their calls if they have some important insights to impart. And while one of them will eventually become president, neither one is president yet, nor is either one a member of the congressional leadership; I’m confident that somehow the administration and the other 533 members of congress will be able to muddle through without tapping into the superior wisdom and intellect of their nominees. Sorry, john; it really sounds like you're afraid to debate. This sounds like the sort of ploy we used to use in junior high school elections."

Thanks Micky.

Oh and when is Sarah Palin going have some real interviews with the press? That woman can get in and out of a car super fast. What, no stops at The Today Show while you're all over New York this week. What up with that? My bad, she just dd and interview with Katie Couric. Way to go. 5 whole minutes.


Rant over. Scroll down for something more pleasant

Because McCain is a big ole scaredy cat! Although the right will flip it when Obama rejects the delay by saying he doesn't care about the crisis we are in. Buggers!

honestly, it's like reading the onion. You can't FAKE this kind of idiotic news. omg, hold the phone...the economic genius McCain has to rush back to the Senate because he has soooo much wisdom to offer in a matter he knows zero about. Oh wait, no he does know about it. He has Phil Gramm on his staff. Y'know...the guy that freakin' wrote all of the deregulation legislation that got us into the mess in the first place. uh huh. epic fail.

I say call his bluff. Swap the presidential debate for the VP debate. VPs go on Friday. After all, shouldn't a potential VP, by definition, be ready to step in on a moment's notice and be ready to take over "in a heartbeat"? hmmm. I'm so sure Palin is totally ready to show her foreign experience chops. After all, she had like a whole hour to meet lotsa foreign leaders at the UN the other day. I bet she absorbed YEARS worth of experience in that short amount of time. Ready on day one!

Oh man, I went off on my McCain lovin' mama this morning about this. All of a sudden, it's a hold everything crisis? Where the heck has he been for the past 6 years? Where was he during the S&L crisis in the 80's and 90's? Oh yeah, he was in Congress. What the heck was he doing then to help us?

Oooh, I hope this tactic totally backfires on him.
